Our reception venue offered three types of beer but we were able to bump it to four. The rule was that you can only have 1 import, 2 domestics and 1 micro-brew. Also – only bottles and no draft.
2. Miller Lite
3. Blue Moon
Did your recpetion gave you the freedom of selecting the beer you wanted? What did you choose?

We are bringing our own beer. We’re getting a keg of Mac and Jack’s from the brewery here in Seattle and then a keg of Dead Guy from Rogue Brewing. We’re hoping that’s enough for our 130 guests.
My FI is a microbrew snob, so only the best for him!

We had two choices. They had to be draft beers. We chose Yuengling Lager and Heineken.

We also get to bring our own beer. Very fortunate we get to bring kegs 🙂 We are picking Fat Tire (a local favorite here in Ft. Collins) along with Miller Lite- a beer most of our guests will enjoy. I can’t imagine paying by the bottle!

We bought our own beer, and we bought by the bottle because we really didn’t think an entire keg would be used (>60 guests). We bought a big variety… mostly just because we could. 🙂 We got Corona, Fat Tire, Blue Moon, Honeymoon (by Blue Moon), Sam Adams Boston Lager and Summer Ale, and two local microbrews.
I think your list sounds fine and gives a good variety.

I personally like your top three very much 🙂 I am doing those exact same and having Abita as my fourth because it is a regional brew that hopefully my guest will enjoy!

Ha ha! So much Fat Tire love! I remember when I used to get excited when I could find it anywhere outside of Ft C! That’s awesome.
We’ll be getting a couple kegs from the Palisade Brewery but we haven’t decided which flavors yet. Tastings are definitely in order!

FI wanted Bud for his friends (Yuck!).
I told him my people don’t do Bud, so the other beer is Yuengling Lager (cos we live in PA!)
One keg of each for the pig roast!

I like all of those! Heineken is my favorite. I think people will be happy with that selection. 🙂

Love love love Fat Tire. I love all the NB beers. We buy their folly pack pretty regularly just to get a little of everything. Mighty Arrow might be my favorite.
We’re trying to keep it local for us though, so we’re going with choices from Summit (brewery in St. Paul) and Leinenkugels (brewery in the WI area my FI’s family is from). Possibly something from Surly too. It’s a tough choice with so many options, Minnesota/Wisconsin takes its beer very seriously. I’m HOPING the Summit Oktoberfest will still be out at the time of our wedding, it’s one of my all time favorite beers. Otherwise I’m not sure exactly which beers we’ll pick from the two breweries yet. Too difficult of a decision!

Oh – Minneapolitan – great suggestions! I’m getting married in MN and might have to copy you with the Summit!

We’re buying our own alcohol. I’m ordering a keg of Heineken and a couple cases of Corona. We’ll also have strawberry reisling and an assortment of non-alcoholic drinks.
@Mrs. Spring- with 8 different varieties did you find that people drank most of it? I’m afraid the more choices you get, the greater the chance for things to go to waste.
